POLICE are appealing for information about a missing sex offender who may be in North Yorkshire.

Norman Ormerod is wanted on recall to prison after he went missing from an address in Clitheroe on August 2 and failed to attend appointments with probation.

The 45-year-old was convicted of making indecent images of children in 2011 and 2015.

He was last seen in Preston on August 9 and may have travelled to North Yorkshire or Humberside.

PC Dean Briggs, of Lancashire Police, said: “Ormerod has been wanted for some time now and is in breach of his licence requirements.

“He is believed to have travelled to the Yorkshire area and could be camping.

“I would advise anyone with information not to approach him but to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information should call 01254 353850 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
